The Friends of are having a local gardener, Karen Lindauer, speak on 'Foliage, Flowers, and Fruit for a Fabulous Fall.' She will focus on "tried and true" plants for local gardens.
This program is Monday, Sept. 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the Tucker Library and is free and open to the public.
Lindauer is an avid gardener and member of the Georgia Native Plant Society (GNPS). Following early retirement from the CDC in 1996, she and her husband moved from Morningside to a Tucker home on nearly two acres. Aside from many beautiful hardwoods and a few non-native azaleas, the property was a blank slate. Over the last 16 years, wildflowers, shrubs, and small trees have been added, many from native plant rescues.
Under the direction of George Sanko at Georgia Perimeter College Botanical Gardens, Lindauer volunteers as team leader of the woodland gardens and an experimental xeric sand bed. She is also a member of the Georgia Perennial Plan Association and the Georgia Botanical Society.
